2019 will see an entirely new event which will benefit both trade shows and conferences, with a big overlap in interest. IRRIGEX, the event for the UK irrigation industry will run alongside FLOODEX.
To facilitate this we have to move earlier in the year, from May to February, so this means moving to 2019 and then annually thereafter and will be run in cooperation with the UK Irrigation Association.

Once again, most comments related to the very high quality of our visitors and the size of some of the deals made, including somebody confirming a £500,000 deal on the first day. Unsurprisingly, most exhibitors, who were asked, said they would definitely be exhibiting again.
NEWLY FORMED ASSOCIATION TO HOLD INNAUGRAL CONFERENCE AT FLOODEX
The Association of SuDS Authorities is a newly form body, specifically for professionals working with Local Authorities. The Association will be officially launched at FLOODEX and the first annual conference will help to mark this occasion, attracting a very important audience.
FLOODEX TEAMS UP WITH UK IRRIGATION ASSOCIATION TO CREATE IRRIGEX
As there is a crossover of interest in the management of water, we have teamed up the the UKIA, who have moved their annual conference to form part of the overall event This will give suppliers and end users, interested in irrigation, a platform where they can meet face to face and come away much better informed and equipped to deal with their respective issues.
HEALTH & SAFETY AWARENESS TRAINING WORKSHOP
In response to the Internal Drainage Board requests, there was a special, free to attend program, covering health and safety awareness training. These sessions were delivered by two eminently capable professionals. We plan to repeat this for the next Show.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
You’ll be able to engage with experts and consultants, harvesting advice on what your could and should be doing.
Network with your peers, find out what their plans are and share ideas. There’s a lovely quote attributed to George Bernard Shaw: ‘If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, we still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange ideas, we each have two ideas’.
Talk to the people and organizations on the exhibition stands, who can help you deliver your planned solutions with the latest equipment, technology, services and knowledge.
You’ll be able to talk to a wide range of suppliers and expert advisers that would normally take you months to get around; trade shows are the most productive use of your time. Especially if you are thinking of changing or looking for a new supplier.
It’s one or two days out of your year that could continue to pay dividends for months and even years to come, whilst making you more effective, efficient and possibly even save you money.
Entry includes FREE access to all the CPD accredited seminars.
